This Week in Political Cartoons – Capitol Riot Edition 1/10/21

This Week in Cartoons on CartoonState.com - Weekly Capitol Riot Edition

It should come as no surprise that Wednesday’s Capitol Riot is the most depicted event in political cartoons from this monumental week.  Due to the sheer number of cartoons and their quality, I have culled very few from my subscription service and instead grouped them into more easily digestible sections.

This first group begins with the Capitol Riot, 26 cartoons on 3 pages.

[If you’d like to see the political cartoons portraying the fallout from Wednesday’s coup, including Trump’s Twitter ban and calls for his impeachment (again) click here.] [If you’d like to see how our week of burning democracy has been captured abroad in international political cartoons, click here.] [If you’d like to see the political cartoons that came out before Wednesday’s coup, including ones on the Georgia Senate race and other topics from the week, click here.]

  1. Tough times for us all, but somehow — cartoons help!
    Caricatures of the elements at play, often in humorous ways, somehow help me see a larger picture, even let me laugh. Even this last week….thank you, Olive!
